Skinny Banana Chocolate Muffins

3 bananas
2/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1/3 c. applesauce
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/3 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Line a muffin tin with muffin papers. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mash up the bananas. I used a handheld beater for most of it, then switched to a fork to mash up the few chunks that were left.

Add the sugar, egg, and applesauce to the bananas. Mix together.

Working with 1/4 of a cup at a time, add in the flours and cocoa powder, stirring after each addition. Add in the salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir to combine.

Fold in the chocolate chips. Stir just enough to combine.

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin. You can fill the cups all the way to the top. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool a few minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Makes a dozen muffins.

Here's a link to the recipe I used. One of my favorite blogs: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2012/11/11/skinny-chocolate-banana-fudge-muffins/
